Data from: Rapid evolutionary loss of metal resistance revealed by hatching decades-old eggs

Patrick William Turko, Laura Sigg, Juliane Hollender, Piet Spaak & Patrick Turko
We investigated the evolutionary response of an ecologically important freshwater crustacean, Daphnia, to a rapidly changing toxin environment. From the 1920s until the 1960s, the use of leaded gasoline caused the aquatic concentration of Pb to increase at least 5-fold, presumably exerting rapid selective pressure on organisms for resistance. We predicted that Daphnia from this time of intense pollution would display greater resistance than those hatched from times of lower pollution. This question was addressed...
